The Second Assassin by Christopher Hyde

From the master of international suspense comes a tense and powerful thriller based on actual World War II events that follows two unlikely allies in a desperate race to stop the perfect assassination.
The year: 1939—and the world is readying itself for war that is sure to come. 
The conspirators: A group of powerful men who want to keep America out of the approaching conflict—at all costs.
The plan: Assassinate the King and Queen of England on American soil, destroying any hope of an alliance between Great Britain and the United States—and ensuring victory for the Nazis in World War II. 
Praise for Christopher Hyde

“Up to the minute suspense . . . like Caleb Carr meets Frederick Forsyth.”—Lee Child, bestselling author of Echo Burning
“[Hyde] draws tension with the skill of a surgeon. A story that grips you with its characters, action surprises, then won’t let go, even after you turn out the light.”—Michael Connelly, bestselling author of City of Bones

“Hyde’s storytelling is pure genius.”—New York Daily News

This guy is a beast, his newest book I purchased my second is still wrapped, I gave it to myself. I read alot. If you are a higgins fan no disrespect, this guy is better. At least in his first title ive read to be fair. I purchased this book for my father, I had rented it from the Library. I will ask my dad when I can borrow it. Good stuff, good old assasin work, without all the mission-impossible gadgets. Buy this book and save money on the popcorn and soda. And alot better plot.
